<strong>14.1" LCD Seems resonable.
* 14.1" LCD is al least 1" larger that the viewable area on a 15" iMac CRT[
* 14.1" LCD would be cheaper than 15" LCD, helping to keep prices low.
* iBook LCD is a measly 12.1", and it looks great.
* Remember news reports about some company manufacturing 14" LCD for "new apple laptop (son of pismo)"?, maybe it wasn't a laptop. (or the new iMac form factor confused them into thinking it was)
So now, instead of (or in addition to) the megahurtz myth, we are also going to have the "flat panels and inches myth".....
[customer] So, let's see, I can get this Compackard PC with a 17" monitor, or this iMac with a 14" monitor....
[CompUSA sales chimp] Well, they are really pretty much the same screen area... um, the resolution is exactly the same....I mean, when you consider CRT vs LCD and the viewable area and the total screen real estate....
[customer] WTFRU talkin bout, Willis ?
[CompUSA sales chimp] um... er..... oh well, did you want that Compackard PC in 1.2 or 1.4 gigahurtz, sir?
